Adult Program Overview
Nashoba Learning Group’s innovative Adult Program opened on March 4, 2013 and currently serves 28 young adults. Our Program provides participants 22 and older with the platform to enjoy a productive and fulfilling life. This Adult Program serves as a model for addressing a rapidly growing, urgent problem nationally as well as internationally.
The NLG Adult Program is a pioneer for other programs for adults with Autism because of its scope, depth of content and the quality of its staff. Enrollment is available to adults with Autism in addition to those currently served by NLG whose ongoing needs fit with the program. The Adult Program has both Day and Employment Services. Our program combines appropriate work and volunteer opportunities with continued job and life-skills training, community engagement and recreational activities for its members.
The Adult Program is distinguished from other offerings by the quality, training and supervision of program staff. This has been the underpinning of NLG’s success to date in enabling students with Autism to achieve their potential. Highly trained and skilled staff are essential to allowing individuals more impaired by autism to increase their independence and ability to access the community successfully. The program targets continued skills development for participants with the goal of increasing independence and gradually reducing the need for trained supervision over time.
